Watching The Sun Go Down

We arrived in Gettysburg early in the day on Saturday and when we arrived at our campground our cabin was not ready for us. This was a bit inconvenient since we had plans to go to the Apple Harvest Festival and no pets were allowed but we made the best of it by taking about an hour and driving out to the battlefield.Since we camp near the Pennsylvania Monument this was our first stop.





We had never climbed to the top, so we left Lucy (the dog) in the car and started up. It was a lot of stairs but worth it when we saw these beautiful views from the top.





After walking around awhile we headed back and soon settled in at the cabin.



We finally arrived the festival where we found lots to see.














Of course what would an apple festival be without APPLES!


And APPLE TREES




We opted not to buy our apples this day but did get some before we came home from the Round Barn



The prices were very reasonable and we got a half of a bushel for just $11.00.

We arrived back in Gettysburg before dark and was able to get photos of this beautiful sunset
(See yeserday's post for an additional photo of the sunset)









We were tired but happy as the first day came to an end

That looks like absolute magic! I can smell the apples. Yum! Love that sign you're holding. Totally cool!
I'm so glad you got to experience that--that's a real autumn fun fest!

Ah, the Pennsylvania Monument! I'd never climbed it either but we did on Monday and once we got to the top I had to stop and catch my breath for a couple of minutes. Just goes to show how out of shape I am! Still, it was most definitely worth it as the view was fantastic. Amanda liked the trip back down the spiral staircase even more as she's got rather big feet and those stairs are narrow. Still, I'd do it again!

I wish we'd had a chance to go to the apple festival, it looks like it was a lot of fun and that round barn is really neat!
